Transdev will soon commence operating a fully electric fleet in the Gooi and Vecht region in Northern Holland supporting the local government’s ambition to make public transportation in the area more sustainable.
From 2021, Transdev will operate a fleet of 74 electric vehicles in Gooi and Vecht, making it one of the first regions in the Netherlands where regional bus transportation is completely zero emission.
The announcement further strengthens Transdev’s zero emissions operations in the Netherlands; since March 2016, Transdev has been operating the largest electric fleet in Europe in Eindhoven (pictured).
Transdev also operates the largest fleet of zero emissions buses in the world. By the end of 2020, its global fleet will have 1,200 zero-emission buses in operation or on order, and 1,500 by 2024.
Transdev’s global experience operating zero-emission fleets on a large scale ensures it has the expertise to work collaboratively with partners at a local level to advise on greener and cleaner mobility solutions.
The Gooi and Vecht region is well known throughout the Netherlands for two distinct landscapes; meadows, canals and lakes, sprinkled with pretty historic towns and estates and hilly landscapes covered in forests and heathlands. Zero emissions public transport will help protect the amenity of towns and cities in the region and contribute to cleaner local communities across the region.
